    I'm not sure what I did but I am no longer able to half press the shutter button to re-focus in Video mode. To refocus I have to press buttons like Fn2 or the record button or Fn1 despite I have disabled all those 3 buttons. Anyone have any idea what might have happened? I tried searching for a factory reset but couldn't find it.

    I just discovered about the OM-D when shooting, correct me if there is a better way or already posted to:

    - Up Arrow one press. => Display full settings on the screen/EVF

    The details are cleared after a few seconds. If you want to see:
    • Flash Mode
    • Meter Zone
    • WB Setting
    • Sensor Format Ratio
    • Lens Focal Length
    just press the up arrow. (Or rock the front finger wheel 1 click then back again.)

    Further presses of the up arrow will change an exposure parameter depending on your exposure mode. I'm not sure if other button customisations will prevent this though.

    Another hidden/forgotten gem: Up Arrow followed by "INFO" lets you control the highlight/shadow "S" graph. This camera is nuts!
